For all those who have seen Casino Royale:

How is Craig's delivery of "Bond, James Bond" at the end?

It's cool. But it's not the delivery itself that is memorable, it's the way the scene is set up for him to say it. You'll see...

Can't wait to see it. Have been looking forward to it since I got a copy of the script - so about 9 months now. One of the coolest moments in Bond history? What do people think? It seemed like it had that potential from the script.

Oh, and after he says that his name is: "Bond, James Bond", does he say "What's yours?"

No... he calls him Mr. White over the phone, who replies "Who is this?"... and then on the steps he says "the name's Bond... James Bond", and theres the slight hint of a smile. And that's it. Definitely one of the coolest endings in the series, time will tell if it becomes looked upon as a classic moment :)

A great ending!

Man, with the hint of brass music, his fitting sharp suit, handsome look and his machine gun, Daniel just oozed into what we know as James Bond, and he delivers the line in a confident and thrilling way.

James Bond is born.
James Bond is back.

Daniel Craig IS James Bond.
Daniel Craig will return.


...that's what I read into it anyway!

Not as good as the one where he comes back to the card game after drinking that dodgy martini and says "that last hand neally killed me".

He delivers it brilliantly. Whatever flaws there may be in the film, Craig's not one of them. He nails the part.

What you're describing here... is this scene showed in nearly all of the trailers with him holding up the silenced machine gun in front of some building?

Yes. And he delivers the line spot-on.

Question: How does the Bond theme play? Is it the same as the clip on the official site, as in, the opening of the theme starts as soon as he delivers the line, or when he delivers the line had the theme already started when he blew Mr. Whites kc out and it kicks into high gear with the main portion (or middle part if you will) as he finishes the "James Bond" bit? Hope that question makes sense.

The best bit is Bond's feet approaching White and the theme starting!!! WOW! Makes you feel giddy!

And did anyone else get the crap scared out of them when Bond fires the gun? lol

His delivery is perfect but did anyone notice that its the same way that Mathis introduces himself to Bond at the start... so he compies it like a joke or perhaps to get recognition off White?

Anyway...its pitch perfect like most of his performance.

This is the ending that was proberbly learn't from 'OHMSS'...tragic events at the end , but lets send people home smileling not depressed.Daniel Craig is the best 007 since Lazenby.You come out of the cinema on a real high.I just hope he grows into being 007 & not let the fickle shape or mould him.
Also did anyone else pick up on the line from 'M' when she refers to the press as '[email protected]'...do you think that was a little payback for the way the press crucified Daniel at the press launch?..If so BRILLIANT..just what the '[email protected]' deserve.
Nice one EON !!!

I've been long looking forward to the ending. It did not disappoint, and should get a reputation as one of the classic scenes. Loved Craig's delivery of "the line" - delivered with pride in himself and also the faintest hint of a smile. Wonderful :)

Hope that question makes sense.

When Mr White gets shot, thats when a subtle undercurrent of the theme begins, and continues as he crawls along, and as Craig's feet go past him... then Craig delivers the line and it's "DA DA! DAAA! DA DA DAAAA!" etc, and cut to black...

Hope that makes sense.

I was like "here it comes, wait for it"

and then, he blows his Kneecaps off and I was like "[censored]!! Faster than I anticipated!!"

Then again, I was a bit tipsy from the drinks I had before seeing it and at this point it was past 2:30 in the morning (caught the midnight showing)...

Craig absolutely nailed it. The ending of Casino Royale is going to be one of THE classic Bond moments.

Definatly the best delivery. The conversion, the gun, the line, and the James Bond theme made it the best moment in the movie. Craig has rightly earned it.

So, who would you closely compare it to? Is it quicker than Brosnan's delivery? Slower than Dalton's? Inquiring minds want to know :)
